Worship nights are an interesting phenomenon in the church today. Church leadership seems to have recognized, even if only on a subconscious level, that some modern-day churchgoers aren’t always in the pews for the right reasons. There can be a mentality of “I went to church on Sunday, I’m good.” Worship nights offer a non-obligatory option for believers who are willing to sacrifice more of their time. Sunday morning services are under a strict time-constraint in most churches, so worship nights serve as a kind of extended service. A night of worship also allows the worship team a little more freedom in terms of expression and song choice.
Hosting a worship night isn’t as easy as it sounds, however, which is probably why Discovery Church has waited almost 8 years before hosting their first one. Planning a worship night can be a daunting task, especially because you’re faced with the struggle of having to hold onto a congregation’s attention for an hour with just songs. Thankfully there are plenty of references online to turn to if you’re new at planning worship nights. Planned-spontaneity is a subtle undertone of the best worship nights.
Most churches spend more time planning their worship nights than they do their actual services on Sunday morning, which can seem counter-intuitive since worship night attendance is usually lower than the regularly scheduled services. Worship nights, however, offer a unique opportunity for people who aren’t members of the church to come and see what they’re all about in a non-committal way. It’s a relaxed atmosphere where they won’t be “preached at,” and they won’t be forced to socialize with people they don’t know. Church members are usually encouraged to bring people they know who either aren’t believers or who don’t have a current church home.
Discovery Church, located in Port Saint Lucie, is hosting a night of worship experience on September 14th. This will be the church’s first Night of Worship since opening their doors in late 2008. They will be kicking off the night with a performance from E Lancelot, a Christian indie pop artist. He just released his debut EP “Grace Alone EP” on SoundCloud, and he promises to be a force in the indie pop world.
TC3, another church on the Treasure Coast, will be joining the Discovery Church band onstage for the rest of the night. TC3 stands for Treasure Coast Community Church, and they are a mega-church in Stuart. Having a more experienced church involved in the planning of this night means it is sure to be effective. The songs led by Discovery Worship and TC3 will be accompanied by a visual and lighting experience so dynamic you won’t want to miss it.
The event will be held at the PSL Civic Center, located at:
9221 SE Civic Center Pl,
Port St. Lucie, FL 34952
Doors open at 6:30pm, and seats can be reserved here. While seating is open and free, a minimum donation of $10 is recommended to help benefit Discovery Church. You can also choose to donate $15 or $20. This uplifting, thrilling, and encouraging night of worship promises to be something you won’t want to miss.
